Thus, to provide a fast, security, and stable network for the bank headquarters and over hundreds of branches in the nation, the bank requires the system integrator to provide network solutions for financial service and use customer premise equipment (CPE) with high security performance to connect to the server via virtual private network (VPN).
Conduct encrypted, remote data access with high security between the headquarters and domestic branches as well as wired/wireless network backup function with a stable connection.
The low-end VPN router selected by the bank in this case for the initial establishment suffered from various malicious cyberattacks and required great cost in case of extension, movement or changes. The bank starved to find a new CPE that meets cost-effectiveness without requiring much manpower to strengthen the security of network operations. To realize and improve the information and communication system, the information management department of the bank headquarters decided to select a securer communication product with better privacy technology and specifications.
